Missing and Stolen Dolls

Jun 22, 2008

      • What is missing? Resinsoul Dong face plate in coffee skin
      • Are there any distinguishing characteristics? (i.e. specific damage, modification, etc). Missing Headcap (possibly missing magnet where the headcap should meet the faceplate. I have no photos of him so I am providing the company photo (original issues with doll bonding means he hasn't really been photographed...)

      • When was the doll last seen? Sunday, March 20th
      • Where was the doll last seen? Safeway in Salem Oregon near Silverton
      • Under what conditions did it go missing, and do you know who may have taken it? (i.e. Was it "traded" to another forum member who has disappeared or been banned? Was the doll stolen at a meetup?) Brought to place of work of faceup artist for pickup. The doll head was placed in a box and locked in a cabinet behind the floral counter. Faceup artist 'hopes it was hidden by prankster coworker' as few have access to that area. Faceup artist has kindly ordered a replacement but I would be happy to have my own back....
      • Where would you like to be contacted if someone has any information on your doll? Via PM on denofangels is fine.

    1. It's so sad to write this, especially after being inactive here and just enjoying the collection I had, but I guess I'll post the information here on the off chance something may come up, even if just for the sake of justice. My entire collection of 9 dolls was stolen from me. I left California temporarily and couldn't bring my dolls, so they were left in a indoor storage unit in Lennox, in the south Los Angeles area. Literally days after I got back to California, but before I could get to my unit, it was broken into, and my dolls, amongst other things, were taken. They were stolen around May 6th, 2016.

      The missing dolls are: Dream of Doll DoC Bee-A, Nobility Doll Raon, Soom Iv, Crobidoll Silver Ring Ara. These dolls had factory faceups.
      And these dolls had faceups I did myself: Luts Senior Delf Kara, Luts SDF Ethan, Angel Fantasy Koli, DikaDoll Ling Ri, Soom Dolomi. There was an FantasyDoll Nina head I used to practice faceups as well; this head had some subtle staining because of this. Their clothes, eyes, wigs, accessories... everything was taken.

      Most of these dolls were hot glue sueded, a couple of them wired, but in good condition. I don't think that the people who took them really understand what BJDs were, they seemed to just grab things at random. I suspect they'll end up in a second hand flea market in the LA area somewhere, hopefully not just junked... So far I haven't seen anything online. I don't expect to ever see them again, sadly, but it's worth a shot. I'm trying to gather what photos I can, but they were on different harddrives, and may also be missing (though I did recover at least one HD from the storage). If I find any, I'll be sure to add them here. My icon has the SDF Ethan I painted.

      I can be reached here via PM, or on DeviantArt, Tumblr, Twitter, and Instagram with the username Mowsette. [email protected] is also an option.
       
    2. I would get a lawyer and have a little chat with that storage facility. Those indoor storage places are supposed to be secure with cameras and people watching. That's the whole reason you pay them over a $100 a month usually for a storage space. If someone broke into your storage space then they owe you for what was lost. I'm sure they have some kind of liability insurance. Pursue it. You might not get your dolls back but you might get compensated at least.

    3. @Mouse Wow, that's awful. :( Best wishes getting your things back! :(

      I second contacting the facility; they might have insurance. Also, try contacting the local flea markets, pawn shops, thrift marts, etc. with your contact info (multiple contact options) + printed-out photos of your dolls and things, so they can be on the lookout for them; also contact the individual sellers who sell dolls/similar things at the flea markets with your contact info and the same photos. File a police report, and also give them photos of the dolls. Sometimes they'll bust a theft ring and the confiscated items will just gather dust in the evidence rooms since they don't know who to call. Stay vigilant! Thieves sometimes wait a few weeks or months before unloading their merchandise. Don't give up!

    4. So sorry to hear this @Mouse. How devastating.

      Definitely file a police report and contact the storage facility. I'm hoping you had homeowners or renters insurance. If so, contact your insurance company so they can get involved as well, and help you with a claim against the storage company's insurance. Document every step and conversation, and provide receipts and any photos you have. Best of luck to you!

      Trying to get this spread around - maybe I can get my doll back!

      Sometime about ten days ago, my apartment was burglarized. All my electronics were stolen, as well as my son’s hermit crabs and big crabitat. Family has been kind enough to offer some replacements, including a new tank for kiddo, but I would *really* like my Haupe back.

      Haupe is a 1/3 sized (approx. 24 inches tall) ball jointed doll, from Magical Angel. He’s a male Kelly sculpt with their basic faceup. Doll was stolen, wearing the items pictured: Panda hat, blond wig, wig cap, orange rubber band bracelet, rainbow tubescarf, pink and white necklace, black collar, rust red/maroon hoodie shirt, gray leggings, and black fuzzy boots. He has a small scuff under his wig cap, that I just had not gotten around to scrubbing off, but no damage otherwise.

      Haupe means a lot to me - he’s been my hobby, my one ‘big’, non-electronic purchase, ever, and a secret stress reliever. I wasnt huge into any of the groups or meetups, but that doesn’t make him less special. As a low income single mom, that makes him pretty important. If found and returned, I will do my very best to repay you, to pay it foreward. And if you’re the thief, I won’t ask questions. You must have awful issues of your own, to steal from someone who’s already down.

      Please, could we spread this around? Repost everywhere, please. Hopefully someone will see him and get him back to me. (at Kearney, Nebraska)

      Right now I'm working with a Fifi Wilson on Facebook who was also scammed. My package is held by customs, and Fifi has a police report with multiple counts of fraud on it against Miya. We are waiting to see if the package is claimed (Miya will have to pay $70 in fees because I do not underdeclare items) and if she does, the police can track her.

      Please see my post on tumblr for more information.

      I have removed her address from this post so that I can share it here. All information is available there.

      Here is a picture of my Denis:

      Where was the doll last seen? At the Copycat building in Baltimore, MD where i lived from 2011-2013.
      Under what conditions did the doll go missing and do you know who might have taken it? I don't know. I noticed she was missing after i moved away, she was not with my other dolls. I lived in a place that was all shows and parties so someone could have easily stolen her.

Buy from Japan! Buyee shipped it by Express Mail on February 10th, 2017 but she never arrived to me. Her tracking number states that she was delivered to a completely different state and person. It was signed for by "P. Francisco" in Kansas City, Missouri. However, this person did not return the doll to the postal service, even though it was not their package. Buyee filed a postal claim and the postal service declared the package lost. I have not received any refund at this time. :(

    10. PROBLEM SOLVED! My neighbor took the parcel in, and reached out to me. She is safe with me. Much ado about nothing :sweat

      I am writing with great grief that a doll of my dreams have been stolen even before I've opened them. I will update this post with help from my seller, as the seller knows more about this doll than myself.

      What is missing? (Mold, skintone)

      Fairyland Minifee Normal Skin Chloe with default faceup. Mako eyes were included. It has the fairyland box, but it predates CoA, so no CoA.

      Are there any distinguishing characteristics? (i.e. specific damage, modification, etc).
      If the faceup is still kept, then she can be identified by the faceup.

      When/where was the doll last seen?
      It was delivered at front door in June 21st, 2018, 12:25pm. I came to check for the parcel at 6:50pm, but it was not there.

      Under what conditions did it go missing, and do you know who may have taken it?
      I highly suspect my newly moved-in neighbors. It was probably stolen from my front door.

      Where would you like to be contacted if someone has any information on your doll?
      Please just message me directly on DoA. I get email notfication, so I can check your message pretty quickly.

    11. Today I bought two BJD's that I found in the thrift store my fiance works at. Of course we bought them and are psyched but we're also concerned that they might have been misdonated, like, someones mom donated them by mistake.

      One is an MSD Angel of Dream, the other is an unidentifiable YoSD. If you can provide a description of these dolls, or photos, we'd love to reconnect you!
